Vision and mission

Pressures of population growth and prosperity are stressing transport networks worldwide, most noticeably in developing countries. The need for infrastructure renewal and development presents opportunities for syntheses of engineering practice and theory to create frameworks of understanding which can serve as bases for creating new ideas to improve mobility, enhance safety and foster smart growth in transportation systems. While the International Journal of Transportation Science and Technology will probe the frontiers of the technically possible, it will also publish papers on the constraints on the possible, in terms of public policy, government regulation and natural environments.

The International Journal of Transportation Science and Technology is the only English language journal focussing on these issues, with special emphasis on the developiong world. As such it will be a most useful addition to the literature, benefitting researchers, practitioners and policy makers, the community of innovation in transport in the broadest sense.

Themes

The editors will welcome papers on:-

• Innovative roadway materials
• Innovative railroad engineering and technology
• Transportation planning and network growth
• Geometric impacts on traffic operations
• Traffic engineering and safety
• Signal control and traffic impact analysis
• Urban street parking and parking management
• Traffic safety under poor weather conditions
• Traffic simulation for operating a network under abnormal conditions
• Traffic safety and operations of two-lane highways, expressways, and freeways,
• Traffic collision countermeasures and safety devices

 

Publication ethics for the International Journal of Transportation Science and Technology

Publication and authorship

In the covering letter to the editor accompanying their submission authors should indicate the source of financial support for the research. They should attest that the work is wholly theirs, free from plagiarism and fraudulent data, and that it has only been submitted to IJTST, and that, if accepted, it will not be re-published elsewhere.

 

Author responsibilities

Authors are obliged to participate in the review process, acknowledging/incorporating reviewer recommendations. Post-publication, should errors be exposed, authors will be obliged to provide retractions/corrections.

 

Peer review/reviewer responsibilities

Reviewer judgement will be objective, reviewers will only be selected who do not have conflicts of interest with respect to the research, the authors, or their funders. Reviewers will maintain confidentiality at all times.

 

Editorial responsibilities

The editor has complete responsibility for accepting/rejecting articles. He will not put himself in a potential conflict of interest as regards accepting/rejecting any particular paper. Papers will not be accepted if, were post-production errors to be found, he thinks it likely publication of correction or retraction would not be easily and willingly done. He will ensure reviewer anonymity is preserved.

 

International Journal of Transportation Science and Technology - its editor, editorial board and publisher – adheres to the COPE - Committee on Publication Ethics – Code of Conduct, see http://publicationethics.org/files/u2/New_Code.pdf
